Software development is the core of what we do. We know there are thousands of companies in the software development space. We are going to give you really good work, and we are going to build a relationship with you. We offer ownership, loyalty, and trustworthiness: core values that are often lost in the commoditization of software development services.
Our DevOps engineers play a pivotal role in implementing DevOps practices, managing infrastructure as code, and facilitating a culture of continuous integration, continuous delivery (CI/CD), and automation. They bridge the gap between development and operations by ensuring that code changes can be deployed smoothly while maintaining system stability and reliability. DevOps demands have increased significantly in recent years, and our team has experience with all three major platforms: Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform
In addition to having numerous staff with certifications in AWS and Azure, First Factory is a certified AWS Partner.

Our Software Architects will help you design well-structured, scalable, and efficient software systems—regardless of the complexity. We can assess existing applications that are failing to meet business or user needs or that are simply costing too much to adapt and maintain. Often, our architects will serve in a technical leadership capacity for part or all of the project to provide guidance and oversight to the team. First Factory Architects will help evaluate and forecast future costs so that the technical decisions made up front will align with your company’s project and long-term budgets.
Our QA team, supported full-time by a dedicated QA Manager, creates detailed, comprehensive, and well-structured test plans and test cases for your products. They are experienced in performing functional testing, regression testing, smoke testing, and sanity testing for both web and mobile applications. While manual testing is still utilized on all projects, every one of our QA Engineers has advanced knowledge from using at least one automated testing technology—such as Selenium, Cypress, Playwright, or Appium—as we have witnessed the shift in demand for these skills from clients and engineers alike. Of course, they have solid knowledge of MySQL or SQL Server, are familiar with source code tools like Bitbucket or GitHub, and are comfortable with API testing using Postman or similar tools.
No team should be without QA, even if the dedication is half-time. It is a role that we have seen improve code quality and team velocity, reduce bugs, and prevent future refactors.
